    Default Show me your trailer dressing room!

    I'm upgrading my '94 Trail-Et to an '00 Hawk bumper pull. The Hawk has the v-shaped nose, and I'm planning to build a seating/storage area in that part. I'm debating on also framing in a floor-to-ceiling corner cupboard. Help me with any other ideas you may have! I NEED IDEAS!!! My husband and father are both pretty handy, so no idea is to large or difficult

    Hi Mali,

    I have an older Trail-Et. Nothing fancy, but since my Dad and I like working on projects we did a re-do on the Tack room. It looks pretty good I think, all we did was:

    - Laminate flooring
    - Re-carpet Nose/Sleeping Area
    - Sand and repaint interior (not the roof)
    - Install wire baskets
    - Padding behind bridle hooks (to dampen noise/protect trailer wall)
    - Had new curtains made

    It's not perfect because it is older and nothing is exactly "square" but it was a lot of fun and I like the way it came out (and it didn't cost a ton either)!

    I've put a link to the FB album with all the pictures.

    Looks very nice.
    I like the idea of a bumper for the bits hanging there.

    Nice job meboss84!
    The wall with the bridle rack in my Hawk is already carpeted, and the floor carpet looks pristine! Years ago, I picked up some flooring tiles at Home Depot that looked like hardwood, but was actually a rubber type water-proof tile. I installed it in our little bathroom, and everybody loved it. It was so easy to work with and looked fantastic, so I'm contemplating putting that in the dressing room. I'd probably have to lay down a thin layer of plywood over top the existing carpet though. If it brings the floor up level with the doorway lip, it sure would make it easy to keep swept out! The trailer already has a hanging wire clothing rack and a fold-down blanket bar, so I already have a good start. I just need to put a few personal touches on it
    Thank you for sharing your photos!!!
